Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

Dakota State students will be able to benefit from a cooperation with ANY.RUN (an interactive online platform for detecting and investigating cyber threats).

Dr. Josh Stroschein, assistant professor of Cyber Security and Network & Security Administration in The Beacom College of Computer and Cyber Sciences, has been working with the company for some time, using the company’s free services in his classes. Some of the ANY.RUN courses include Malware Analysis, Intrusion Detection, and Advanced Malware.

Beginners and advanced analysts who are eager to boost their knowledge in the sphere can take these master and undergraduate programs. The main benefit is that all lectures and labs are dedicated largely to analysis practice, from malware delivery to lateral movement, obfuscation, reverse-engineering, and others.

DSU students can use the service to safely analyze and research the latest malware samples from all over the web, monitoring the malware activity in real-time. The interactive access makes the learning process more productive.

“ANY.RUN is glad to cooperate with Dakota State University, which has developed strong cybersecurity programs,” said Aleksey Lapshin, the founder of ANY.RUN. “It’s important that more and more specialists choose this sphere and they can use modern tools right away.”

Stroschein is also working with students to write technical analysis blogs to be published on ANY.RUN’s blog site. This is part of his efforts with mentoring students. “I’ve been working with several students to help them grow as malware analysts, and find them professional opportunities,” he said. Because they are a globally recognized company, having blogs on ANY.RUN “would look great on student’s resume.” The first student blog was posted in late April. 

ANY.RUN is an interactive online service for cybersecurity specialists. More than 200,000 analysts investigate, detect, and monitor malware with the company. It is also a convenient platform for education.
